yup.gif A great read, I read it several months ago, but I agree, addiction is total BS. A change in scenery, or a happier environment can often bring about total lifestyle changes.
Yeah some things, alcohol, coke and heroin can make you feel like ass coming off of them, but it will pass in a week or two, addiction has become a billion dollar industry, and that's what it's it's all about.
There's a monetary incentive to fill peoples heads with shït.

Yes, a very interesting theory. Also, if one is alone and unhappy, and for some, the only place to go is inward, so you may as well have a trippy trip if you have to go there.

If everyone would admit the truth, exposed out from behind their lies and masks and costumes and shields of delusional denial, that they hide themselves behind and wear for each other, i'll bet anything that every person has problems of varying degrees of severity being addicted to something, whether its food, or gambling, or drugs, or credit cards, ect ect and or whatever simultaneous combination of them...

yup.gif Nothing actually wrong with the above if it's done within your means. Every one needs to elevate from the norm, but you have to know at what point your crossing the line into ruin.
Awareness.

Exactly and i dont have a problem with anyone doing any of the things that i mentioned above, or whatever else, myself included, as long as we can control them,

but as soon as they start controlling us, look out, because then we're playing with fire and flirting with disaster, as i've intentionally done and still do so many times, burning the candle at both ends,

i mean like hey what the f##k, i really like and have actively searched for and enjoyed the darker sides of life and i aint afraid to do them and i aint afraid to admit it to myself or anyone...

Quote: "I'm traveling down the road i'm flirting with disaster, i've got the pedal to the floor my life is running faster"

I'm out of money i'm out of hope it looks like self destruction, well how much more can we take with all of this corruption"

"Been flirting with disaster you all know what i mean and the way we run our lives it makes no sense to me"

"I dont know about yourself or what you want to be, when we gamble with our time we choose our destiny"

"Cant seem to slow it dow our lives are running faster, got our sights set straight ahead but i'm not sure what we're after"

I made an experiment some years ago where I simultaneously quit Internet, caffeine and telecom cold-turkey. In just a few days really weird things started to happen...

Almost anything can be an "addiction" but most likely your "addiction" is composed of a multitude of things.

This is just my personal view, any single thing or combination of things that

- distracts IRL interaction with people that are not assholes
- distracts interaction with nature
- blocks creativity
- otherwise results in serious waste of time

should be considered as bad kinds of "addictions" and that is the stuff you want to deal with somehow if you want to improve the quality of your life.
